* ''ThePrincess99'': Eulalie, a character who's present twice in the paperback version (and only once in the online version), is an Inkwitch who can make her painted creations come to life. She's also batshit, though it's justified since she's spent most of her life in an insane asylum.

* ''MPDPsycho'' features a serial killer ''architect'' who employs "human planters" to perfect the landscaping around the buildings he designs. He literally grows plants inside the brains of girls he kidnaps, then plants the whole body, with the plant growing out of the top of the head.

* The ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' games feature these once per game;
** Panda King of ''VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus'' is, as Sly put it, a spurned firework artist turn homicidal pyromaniac. He turned to crime when his skills were dismissed due to his poor background, and he's taken to setting off avalanches on villages that won't pay protection money.
** Dimitri of ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'' was an up-and-coming painter, but his "Kinetic Aesthetic" (Painting while swinging from a rope) was unappreciated. He became an art forger, and uses the Clockwerk tail feathers to print counterfeit money.

The Mad Artist is somewhat rarer a trope than the Mad Scientist since, while ScienceIsBad, art is almost always good, or at least benign (even if it is [[TrueArtIsAngsty angsty]] or [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible incomprehensible]]). Some characters actually embody both tropes at once, using super science to fuel their mad artistic vision. While a MadScientist can be one of the good guys, you'll practically never see a Mad Artist so venerated—to escalate into ''Mad'' Artistry, the artist must usually [[MoralEventHorizon break too sacred a taboo]] (eg. murder or torture) to be an acceptable good guy.

* As the Daedric prince with dominion over the spheres of both [[MadGod madness]] and creativity, people like this are right up [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Sheogorath]]'s street. Of course, he's as like to [[http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:16_Accords_of_Madness,_v._IX torment them]] as he is to inspire them, but still.

Added DiffLines:

* DownplayedTrope with Yusuke from ''VideoGame/{{Persona5}}'', the AmbiguouslyGay {{Adorkable}} quirky art student party member. While he's far from a bad person, there's no denying he's got some kind of AmbiguousDisorder, possibly on the Autism Spectrum.

* Vincent Van Gore from ''[[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi's Mansion]]'' would likely count under this (as well as ArtInitiatesLife). An obvious parody of Van Gogh, he's apparently never sold a painting in his lifetime, kept painting long after death and brought numerous ghosts to life from the artwork in his studio. And set about 30 of them on Luigi, mook rush style. Funnily enough, he's painting the key you get from defeating him when you actually fight him.

** The game also features Dr. Steinman, a plastic surgeon who went crazy from ADAM abuse and started to fancy himself "Surgery's Picasso". Keep in mind that he's referring to ''technique'', as well as level of genius.
